New South Surrey Catholic school fills longtime need

The creation of a Catholic high school in South Surrey has been a long time coming, according to one of the driving forces behind the parent-led project that will see just such an option open in time for next fall.

But considering the wait, Elgin-area resident Troy Van Vliet said the project has actually come together remarkably fast once it started to take off in earnest.

“It’s funny, it’s almost something that’s been in the works – or talked about, at least – for 30 years, ever since Star of the Sea (elementary) opened,” said Van Vliet, whose two daughters are in Grade 4 and 6, respectively, at Star of the Sea.
